CPU and MOBO upgrade

 Share

So I plan to get a Ryzen 5 1500x and the MSI B350M Mortar motherboard. I want to do some overclocking nothing to extreme. My current PSU is an Evga 450B.

Would this be sufficient to get a light OC? My full specs currently are:

i5-6400

MSI B150 Gaming M3 Mobo

G.skill 2x 8gb 2400 Ram

Nvidia 980Ti Founders edition OC'd +250 on Core and +350 on Memory with +55 on Voltage

Evga 450B PSU

 

Leaving for work now so once I get back I will reply. Thanks for the help!

considering how little price difference is between the 1500x and 2600, I'd say that's not a good idea.

 

MSI's B450 boards are much better. If you stick with 300 series chipset boards, go for Asrock stuff

Agreed ^^

 

About the PSU, that’s a relatively low quality PSU. If you have the budget, I would try to upgrade to something a bit better. Corsair’s grey CXM series is good quality for the price

I will go with the 2600 if it is still the current price next friday when I have my big check for working a pay period straight. I am also trying to stick with MSI mobos so theres less of a chance I will need to reinstall windows.

just because the mobo is the same brand doesnt mean you can get away with not reinstalling the OS. It depends more on luck

I know just hoping that staying with MSI will help with my luck. I need to remake my USB installer so just in case I have it.

That’s an even better choice.

Windows 10 is pretty good about sending new hardware. I changed my CPU/MoBo and had no problems

$250 will get you a 2600 and a good enough motherboard. You can work it out with $225 or so also

It's good enough. Plenty for stock speeds. Most people even do mild overclocking on it. I would try it out, and if you feel you need a better cooler, then you can get one, but it might fit your needs.

Thanks Cereal5! You and Jurrunio have been a big help. For now I am getting a 1500X and MSI ProSeries B450M M.2 Mobo.

whew you went with a b450, I think if you had got a b350 you would of had to do some bios update or something. Honestly if you can spend the extra money get the 2600, though if you're in a pickle the 1500x is fine.

I was in a pickle and did end up getting the 1500X but she is pushing through anything I have thrown at it. I'm currently trying to OC it to 4.1 but it just wont push up that high.

whats your cooling? If you don't good enough cooling then its not gonna push any further, obviously. And if you do have a realllllyyy good cooler than you got a bad chip from the silicon lottery.
